Paul Ryan to Retire With Few Health Policy Wins (1)

With the cushy pension plan Congress provides itself and the House Speaker, Ryan can retire at 48 without ever having to worry about relying on the entitlement programs he wanted to deprive other retirees of. Trump's mercurial style also makes the speaker's job harder: Ryan won't soon forget Trump's threat to veto a spending bill approved last month, a bill crafted in close consultation with the White House.

It is indicative of Trump's impact on the Republican Party that Ryan, the vice presidential nominee in 2012, now faces an uncertain political future only two years after being considered a rising star. Although the Republicans refused to fuel rumors that Ryan was afraid of Bryce, retiring voluntarily gave the former a chance to bow out with his dignity intact without risking what could be a humiliating defeat. "Not only on who is the speaker but who's going to be minority leader".

Ryan was a protégé of the late Jack Kemp, the quarterback-turned-legislator who was the prime advocate starting in the 1970s and '80s of an opportunity-based, inclusive and tolerant Republican conservatism.

We spoke with a couple of Ryan's constituents at the Drexel Square shopping center in Oak Creek. Around the same time, 86% of Democrats said they approved of the ACA.

Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says men like Paul Ryan don't come around often.

Dent also voiced concern that Ryan's departure will worsen internal party rivalries.

It said only that "the matter was successfully handled" by 1:17 pm but did not provide any details. An Air China flight was diverted after an attendant was held hostage with a fountain pen.

Mr Ryan also said he has been assured by the White House that President Trump does not intend to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating potential collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mr Mueller's probe. A few months back, [after attending] church, I went to Dunkin Donuts with my sister and we ran into Speaker Ryan there.

"Historically, the party of the president loses a number of seats in the first midterm election".

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump issued his calmest tweet of the morning about Ryan's exit, calling him a "truly good man" who leaves "a legacy of achievement that nobody can question" adding, "We are with you Paul!" I really want to spend time doing the things that I've just discussed doing. During the interview, Ryan said that even as he would be stepping away from formal Republican politics, he'd still advocate for expanding the GOP's appeal, including pushing for increased diversity in the party.

Ryan was criticised by Democrats for what they saw as his failure to stand up to Trump and firmly confront the President on matters such as Trump's frequent attacks on U.S. law enforcement and the President's alienation of U.S. allies and abandonment of longstanding Republican principles like free trade. He thinks now that Ryan is out, the race for his seat may see a flurry of candidates who otherwise wouldn't have run. There are none in Senate Republican leadership.

"I attribute it to Wisconsin voters standing up to special interests", said Dallet, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge, last week. "So we want to lay out a set of principles that any speaker has to follow", Virginia Representative Dave Brat, a Freedom Caucus member, said.
